head care's -- we're using medicare's coverage to help provide more efficient care and higher quality care by withholding 1% of medicare payments to about 3,000 hospitals. medicare authorities can then redistribute and that $850 million to reward hospitals that perform the best. the second part of approving equality of care comes from encouraging hospitals to lower the rate of readmissions. it gets very expensive if we don't get people treated the first time around. so hospitals with high rates of readmissions will lose up to 1% of their medicare payment until they can improve conditions and care. both of these improvements are an effort to get away from a system that pays for quantity of procedures and care as opposed to quality of care. it is all good news for us. we'll be back with more after the break. presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> you're going to hear that used as a major talking point.

million for the -- romney again repeats the lie about he cut 700 for medicare, and i'm going to put it back. was the president feel in some ways that these things have been debunked so much i don't have to do it again. >> yeah. i think the answer is yes, you have to address it again. it really is a big lie. we cut that money from medicare advantage programs because those programs -- they are private insurance companies who are in medicare, and we gave insurance companies that extra money some years ago as an incentive to offer insurance programs to senior citizens. now the senior citizens are signing up for it, and the insurance companies don't need that money. and i think the president needs to say that straight out. >> stephanie: and as bill clinton said it takes some brass -- >> truth is not an impediment. >> stephanie: that's what i was saying. it really was such a filibuster as jim was saying. governor romney really didn't follow any of the rules. he just kept talking, and so much of it has been fact checked as being incorrect. i think you are right, how in some ways do you com
